Your stock fuel press regulator is a rising rate regulator and should work just fine.

Yup, with 15lb of boost fuel pressure is around 55psi.... Thats why I keep hollerin' about the fuel pressure, yours probably levels off at 40-45psi or so causing your misfire under boost.

Traction at the strip with street tires is actually worse than on the street. The hard rubber actually slips on the soft rubber on the track almost like it was grease. They say not to even heat street tires but, here is what worked for me. Go ahead and do a 5-6 burnout then SLOWLY roll to the line. This allows the tires to cool a little and pickup some of the rubber already on the track. Takes some practice, have ease out the clutch not to spin or bog...
